Sometimes, I wonder what we could be
'Cause sometimes, it's not that hard to see the lies
That hide behind your chocolate eyes.

And sometimes, it's your arms I want to be in,
And hell, I know it's one hell of a sin
But you make m feel safe, and you make me feel fine.
And sometimes, I wished I was calling you mine.

Sometimes it's just hard to say goodbye,
And sometimes I see the way you lie
Th way you hide what you feel inside.

Sometimes, I wish it were you and me,
But I know that it could never be.
We'r two broken souls with two broken bodies
With two crazy minds, and two well-honed hobbies.

Expression's not something we lack,
We just show it in our own little knack.
Be it lines or words, or little tunes,
I know what it is you say
And sometimes I hurt on days like today,

When no one's around, 
And it's just you and me,
And that sweet little soul you do let me see.

That soft side you show,
To make me smile.
To make it feel alright.
For a small little while.

And then it's time for us to part.
Two broken bodies,
Two shattered hearts.
